Probably not going on the refrigerator
I sent Nick some illustrations that I worked on for a client project a few days ago. I thought he'd be interested to see how they turned out, considering he sort of helped me brainstorm the subject matter a long time ago.

I guess he was feeling a bit jealous of the work, because he emailed his own masterpiece* back to me:



Why he chose to draw a horse in the first place is beyond me, particularly since the original illustrations were of something completely different. I also found it quite humorous that he identified this beast, which was part of his original design, not something that I added in later to avoid confusion.

I had to clarify that those were intended to be two eyes and two nostrils, making this particular pose virtually impossible. Nick claims that he's just looking backwards. Who am I to argue with someone of such talent.


*The artist has requested I mention that he envisions his artwork as the Fabio of horses, with his long, glorious mane blowing gracefully with the wind.

HAHAH! I'm pretty sure if I tried to draw a horse, this is how it would look.

I do notice the horse looking backwards, but only after your husband said it.

Perhaps this horse has been inspired by Picasso's geometrically disembodied horse in Guernica.

his head looks more like a scary skeleton/pirates of the carribean head.
